2010 camaro or 2011 supercharged version?

I have heard rumors about a supercharged 2011 model of the camaro. Anyone know if I should wait for the 2011 for the supercharger or will it never happen?

Noone really knows. Joe is right though, there's lots of info (mostly theories, but some tidbits from Fbodfather) around the forum.

The general concensus is that there's nothing immediately in the works.

wouldn't say it's not immediately in the works. would say more like information hasn't been immediately released. . .

Same difference IMO. If they don't want us to know about it, then we don't.

...I sure as hell don't want folks holding out when GM needs sales numbers!...

It sounded like there was perhaps one in development in AZ at one time, but there's no confirmation other that it is not dead - period. The rest is speculation and the hopes and dreams of many...

After the Camaro has been around for a few years at most (some mustang fans would say "if it makes it a few years" - phooey on them) I'm sure GM will create one with a bit more power. Plus, they may be waiting to release it till they tweak the small engine fuel economy - that way it won't mess up their CAFE stuff...

I think if a supercharged Z28 comes out it will be limited production and cost ALOT. $50k +

Yeah who knows what's going on. I did read a quote that said there will be no Z28 it will stay an SS car. But they are also saying there will be numerous performance upgrades available from GM like a hurst shifter, cat back exhaust, high flow air intake system, etc. If we are starting at 422 HP in the SS manual then maybe that can get pushed up to 450 or so. And who knows they might wanna stick it to the Ford GT500 and throw in a supercharger after market accessory. Could just be to expensive to produce from the factory.

Nothing mentioned on these forums. i hope GM uses an Eaton blower though (The more discounts for me, the better )

I've been hoping for a 45th anniversary edition... I'm not planning on buying till 2012 so that would be perfect. By then the Gen V engines should be ready too if they're still under full scale development.

I heard rumors that the preproduction headlights were production, that the Z28 will have the LS7 in 2010, and that the Camaro will transform into a robot complete with cannons. I didn't believe any of these rumors. Hopefully, someone proves me wrong on the third rumor.

You guys kill me with, z28 this and z28 that. The damd car is not even out yet and you are all jumping to the head of the line to get something that may never be available to buy. You never know, the SS might be just enough PWR for you if you can handle it, much less afford it. Just stop with the madness of staring up all these rumors about something you know nothing about. If GM decides to release a Z28 then they will. Every one was jumping all over any little tid-bit of information they could get on the concept Camaro, now the production Camaro. Now that to much info has been relesed to early every one is somewhat bored and you all want to jump to the next thing that may not even be more the hopes and dreams and hope don’t float.

First off - welcome to our community.

I will respectfully ask you to keep your replies within the context of the thread. If you have an opinion or idea, please feel free to post up.

In response to your post, where is the madness you speak of? Was there madness too when the Concept came out; look what happened? Our beloved Camaro is back in action. No one has started rumors in this thread. I'm not sure how new you are to the site (your post count and join date suggests brand new, however, many new members have lurked a while and joined knowing a lot of what's been here already) however no one has claimed to know anything regarding Z28 except for that it isn't dead. Supercharger, light weight, Gen. V engine and such are all speculation, but it is not dead.

Having said that, unless you have something to contribute in this thread, be it an agreement or disagreement, I'd ask you respect the poster and stay on topic, or at least close. The title wasn't, "How many people are mad in thinking there is a Z28? What do you think?" Please post if you have input, otherwise, please look at other threads.

Sincerely...
